"Unfortunately, I suffered two stress fractures in my feet from playing too much hoops," Ainge said. "They are healing up nice though and with my new orthodics, I've been throwing with my teammates, lifting and swimming a lot. Of course I wasn't able to play any basketball in June which was tough. Hopefully I'm totally healed by July because I'm on two summer all-star teams and we have tournaments in Georgia, Las Vegas and several other places."
On the recruiting front, Ainge has scholarship offers from Oregon State, Arizona and Arizona State.
"Coach (Mike) Bellotti at Oregon told me I was the top quarterback recruit on their board and will offer after the season begins," Ainge said. "I'm still interested in Stanford and California too along with the others I've named."
